Fruit and Walnut Chicken Salad

Hello friends.

Another Friday is upon us!  How are these weeks going by so fast.  We are on the edge of summer…unless you live in a place like Houston where it is already breaking 100 degrees with the heat index! Bring on pool days!
img_8930I actually am a person who doesn’t mind the heat for the most part.  I will take it over freezing cold weather anyway. Just give me a spot on the beach and I am a happy girl.

Since it has been so hot I decided to whip together some of my favorite ingredients into a sweet and tangy cold salad. I am linking up with my fav Foodie Friday gals, Farrah from Fairyburger and Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama for a salad themed week.



  • 1 chicken breast, cooked, cooled and cubed
  • 1/4 gala apple, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped mango
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 avocado, cubed
  • Sprinkle of crumbled goat cheese
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil



  1. Place chicken, apple, mango, walnuts and avocado in a bowl, gently stir together.
  2. In a separate bowl blend the balsamic vinegar and avocado oil together.  Drizzle over the chicken mixture. Gently stir in.
  3. Top with desired amount of goat cheese.
  4. Enjoy alone or atop a bed of greens or in a wrap!

    Looks delicious! I guess I shouldn’t complain since we haven’t reached triple digits yet in Philly, lol! I can’t handle that!
